Manchester United will have to pay La Liga outfit Sevilla £17 million for French youngster Geoffrey Kondogbia, according to the Express.
The Red Devils face competition from a number of clubs around Europe for the starlet, including Arsenal, Chelsea and Real Madrid.
And, despite Sevilla president Jose Maria del Nido claiming the 20-year-old is not for sale, the Spanish side will be unable to stop buyers from activating his £17m release clause.
David Moyes could step up his interest in the youngster after missing out on Thigao Alcantara and Cesc Fabregas, who he tried to sign from Barcelona.
United have also been linked to one of Moyes' former player Marouane Fellaini, however with Kondogbia's versatility and age, the United boss looks set to target the Frenchman.
The youngster could make his debut for the French national team tonight as they play a friendly against Belgium and there could be a high interest in the midfielder.
